Author, Author!

I hope this isn't your first or last visit to Mudcat.

Here is the publication link and

here is the author's blogspot blog to do with the book.

This looks like a self-published text. Nothing wrong with that, it allows you to keep more of the profits, but you end up paying for the design and printing and scramble to sell it. It's also a lot harder to get traction in the scholarly world when you publish yourself, because there is no vetting of the text. Have you published other books or articles on this or other music subjects, to give us a little context?

Do you play an instrument, play in a band, collect books and/or recordings, etc? Tell us more about yourself, please!
